Suntech is a big player in the building integrated photovoltaic products (BIPV), partly because of their acquisition of the MSK Corporation. Suntech was founded by Dr. Shi, a senior research scientist and the leader of the Thin Film Solar Cells Research Group in the Centre of Excellence for Photovoltaic Engineering at the University of New South Wales in Australia.
"While BIPV is currently a relatively small segment of the overall solar market, it is one which we expect will grow rapidly in the coming years. Low projected production costs, which are projected to continue to fall from a very low base, when combined with growing residential and commercial demand for our leading BIPV solutions will help make our products very competitive in this space." :: Suntech
